Dunnes Stores in Ruins

Dunnes Stores in Ruins

The skeleton of the Dunnes Stores building on Patrick’s Street lies in ruins as building work continued to refurbish it.

Taken in September 2007, Brian took a shot of the building a few days ago in much better state!

Places are still available for the Cork City Photowalk on July 18th! Please leave comments on yesterday’s photowalk post if you have any questions!

San Francisco will be the gathering place for a large number of WordPress fans at the end of the month as they go to the 2009 San Francisco WordCamp. I won’t be there unfortunately but places are already in short supply, if not all sold out at this stage. It’s going to be a blast!

Here’s a shot I took in 2007 from outside our hotel near Union Square. Love the reflection of the building in the bonnet of the car and glad I got those tourists too!

Honeymoon Cabaret

Yesterday we had lunch in Ammicus, in Douglas while outside the stalls of a market sold all sorts of foods and produce. The road was closed off to traffic for street performers to entertain the crowds. Unfortunately rain probably dampened the spirits of all involved. The showers were really bad!

Here’s Marc and Svetlana Buttersworth, the Honeymoon Cabaret, performing their act to a delighted crowd (with brollies). They were so entertaining, kept the crowd going, and bravely carried on through all but the worst of the showers! Go see them if you hear they’re performing near you!

Pedestrian Crossing

Pedestrian Crossing

The pedestrian crossing outside Eason (I always say “Eason’s”, but it really is “Eason”. Just like Porter’s is “Porter”. These newsagents are a picky bunch!) where young and old traverse the street in relative safety.

Yes, it’s the current header image on this blog. If you’re reading this in the future when I may have changed themes, a cropped version of this was the header when I posted this image!

Looking west from the top of Shandon Bells in Cork City and all you can see is the urban landscape below.
